On Google Chrome it seems like the post box is stretched further than it should be. All you have to do to see it is log in and go to make a new reply or new thread.

I just need to know where in the Templete files I can go to edit this. I just can't find it. Thanks if someone can help me.

A test account would help in order to test out the problem ... but on the face of your attachment I would guess you have a template issue .. perhaps revert to the standard theme and see if the problem has gone ... if so you will need to edit your templates
It is a template issue.

Thanks if you can figure this out. It has been annoying me for days..

As you can see you have an issue with the template (see attachment), the element has a height of 330px set when it should not... perhaps revert theme->New Reply Templates->New Reply to original or search for a line
like this
<textarea id="message" name="message" rows="20" cols="70" tabindex="2" >{$message}</textarea>
and make sure the rows setting is rows="20"

This fixed on one of my themes but not another you need perhaps to look at the css of the theme to find out what is happening
It is still not working, thanks for trying.

Do you know where I could go in the ACP to edit this?
you may add #message_new {height: 262px !important;} at the bottom of ./jscripts/editor_themes/default/stylesheet.css file

see also fix editor and text area
No it didn't work. Damn it doesn't seem fixable. xD
^ after adding the code, have you (hard) refreshed the editor page ? if you can provide required temporary privileges thru PM , I can try it ...
